shaper_educon already has SP Page Builder 2.x.x installed in it. You have to install SPB3 only on Joomla 3.8.1. Not with other extension or another template.

Hello to all the team
First of all I want to congratulate you for your work.
Then, as a user of 'Page Builder' I allow myself to make a few remarks:

For users like me and for my clients, it is essential to have a roadmap for all of your products and especially Helix4 and SP Page Builder.

A forum is not a suitable location to place the description of bugs or features to add.
A simple shared and organized file is a more effective way for all (you and your customers). I can make a proposal.

It seems necessary to group (in development and management of bugs and adding features) Helix and Page Builder because they form a whole. It is preferable to use the two products together to enjoy the power of joomshaper.

You also need to consider making Helix 'x' paying to ensure better development. Yes it's a customer who says.
Otherwise we could find ourselves in the situation where Gantry5 functions were removed for lambda users do not compete with templates sold by Rockett.
Meanwhile, the team Balooba (with Gridbox product) gets ahead of developments by offering maximum functionalities to its customers.

It seems to me important to provide documentary space for different languages. In this space we could find different product documentation translated by users. As well as a comprehensive manual for creating a site with Joomshaper products (example of creation from scratch). This kind of necessary manual never exists, it is essential for a good start.

Please close the comments on "https://www.joomshaper.com/blog/sp-page-builder-3-alpha-1-is-here" and refer users to this forum until something better.

Please clearly define where we should place our comments on testing PB V3alfa1(shared file preferred).

To summarize : Roadmap, File sharing for bugs and improvements, documentation improvement, comments on PBV3alfa1.

Long live joomshaper

Hi

Is it possible to have a "docker" Fresh joomla install to test this V3 version.

More easy, more efficient, more technological.
And easy to compare the behavior two or more different versions and to verify corrections and improvements.

Or minimum virtualbox virtual machine (this is less efficient than docker)

This is a suggestion to improve testing and development.

Sincerely

Claude

I agree with this as Helix * , needs to be updated and THEN we can really see the benefits of sp page 3. At the moment all I really see different with sp page builder 3 is -
It is faster
Better front end layout
Mobile Variations options

This dosen' t really change much as the framework needs to better.
This is not a moan just a suggestion

Hi Claude,

Thanks for loving JoomShaper so much.

We thought the forum is the place where our users are very much used to sharing bug reports and issues. That's the reason we decided to open up the forum for SPPB3 bug and issue sharing.

Meanwhile, we will consider every point you have mentioned and all are very much valuable to us.

Regarding documentation and product manuals we have some ideas that are coming along with the stable release.

And thanks for taking time sharing your thoughts and ideas on our products.

Here I am ready to argue with you. Gridbox only looks externally spectacular, but it's not pretty comfortable. In fact, SP PB is a champion in usability. I have the same experience with both components. And I think SP PB is much better.
If the team and it is worth taking examples from someone, I would suggest taking an example with Divi (Wordpress).

Hey guys.

Great work, looking good so far.

Something is really bothering me with the pagebuilder.

The Parallax Background or fixed background image is not working correct.

The Parallax Background is only working on desktop.
Its not running smooth on Mac
If you add parallax background on a row under a row that also have parallax it flickers in between. See sample : http://hls-it.dk


Other suggestions :

Footer Section
It would be really great if you somehow could add footer section with pagebuilder.
in general it would be good to add more sections.


Addons:

the instagram addon could use some more functions.
Would really like to see the user was able to press the images and then it opens up in the instagram app, or webbrowser.

You should be able to click all the image in the lightbox function on images that black circle with a white crosshair is really annoying :)

Thanks for your hard work

What problem do this with SP PB? Just delete the footer section in the layout template and make the footer as you like in SP PB. Or you can make a footer using the SP PB module and bring it to the position for the footer, and in the template settings, disable the content for the footer.

Hello,

I already posted this comment on the blog article of the latest release. Because I'm not sure the additional images were recognized I'm posting it here again.


This new feature of the Shape Divider has great potential.

When I looked at it in the demo my first thought was that the Shape Divider should not put a shape on top of the row but rather an alpha channel on the background image or colour of a row.

Let me explain.

Right now we can add a shape to a row that behaves like an additional layer on top of the row. If we choose a colour and select a level of transparency then we see the background image or colour through the transparency.

Imagine the design possibilities if the shape would act as an alpha channel of the background image or colour and not as a simple additional layer on top.
.
You could, e.g., set a shape to the bottom of a row, give the shape 100% transparency (or a gradient of transparency from 0-100%), then set a negative margin for the following row and this way the two rows would have interesting transition options. The design possibilities would be endless. Of course it would be helpful to be able to set a value for the z-axis of a row to define which row is in the foreground.


Now we can only do this:

Now.jpg


This is what we should be able to do:

Better-Design.jpg


How about adding this feature also to the page title row in Helix 4?

Looking forward to your comment.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for taking time to test the product and giving us your suggestions. This means a lot to us. We have just released the feature and time to time it will be more maturalized. We will not only add new functionalities with SPB3 but also will introduce new things with its existing features.

Thanks

In the rows settings there is not enough such a simple and natural function as 100% height. Now this can be achieved without problems with css height: 100vh; and min-heigt (optional). But if you apply this code, then the new function of aligning the content in the middle does not work on a live site.

Joomshaper team is awesome!!

1 - Many times when working with pages that use specific colors, the webmaster need to create a collor palette or style page and go back and forward looking for the hex color code. So it would be nice as the same way that the system manage to pick heading to pick color predefined in template, like 6 to 10 predefined colors.
<example, are in text editor and choose heading and in ohter box, pre set color, and the same with some addons

2 - add as default for template (not sppb) the ability to have or not transparent header and website respond according, like a css preset, the same with sub menu settings that need to be more robust

3 - I saw that column equal high disappear and instead use align middle

4 - In safari sppb 3 looks different and with template bugs
safari print screen

@media screen and (min-width: 1960px) {
body.contentpane.modal {max-width: 1920px;}
}

Hi,

I'm continuing to test SPV3 Beta.
Certainly there are many details to correct or improve.
But the most important for me is the editing of text.

1- Editing
The area for editing the text is too small and not very functional (not Tiny or JCE) . It is not 'full page' as I had hoped with this new version.
I think this is the function to add in priority: edit the text (all text) in the page itself.
All the "design" (font, size, type, heading, ...) is configured in the left window like today it's ok.
At first it is possible to consider to extend the left window for a larger editing area with a powerful editor.

Always remember that websites are not just boxes with images and video, the text remains for now the best way to convey information

2- Library
For the library, it would be very interesting to have a notion of instantiation.
That is, set (or not) the objects in the library as generic: the changes made in the generic object propagate in all the pages that use them.
This would be a huge plus and a fantastic time saver for creating websites quickly.

3- Color and text format management
It would be nice to have a color and text management for the site (it's very important).
In the options of the page, or better in the options of the site (function to create) it would be necessary to define the 'decor' of the site in term of text and color at least.
In color picker (same for the text) it will be possible to chose colors defined in page or site. It will be possible to chose another color for specific needs.
Always remember that the construction of a site goes through the design (template with Helix4 :-)) and by the choice of representative text format and colors of the site.

note : add pipette in color picker

4- Other improvements and bugs will follow

5- Please eliminate confusion between "row" and "section"

I agree with everything that you wrote, except paragraph 1.
Apparently, you underestimate the power and capabilities of the JCE editor, such as creating tables, inserting images inside text, JCE MediaBox. I'm ready to endure some inconvenience, instead of losing everything. In addition, the JCE editor can be expanded to full screen

Hi Pavel

I know JCE and possibilities
The problem is not there Pavel
I want to edit text in full page (like GridBox from Balooba do) without to use another window to extend JCE for example
Always with the idea of never losing the page overview

It is technically possible because others do

For example if you try to manage the content of accordions you realize very quickly that it is not ergonomic at all.

We expect the Joomshaper reaction

Claude
I've found that SP Page Builder ignores the language setting for the title separator JPAGETITLE. I'm not sure if this is the same in version 2, but as of the current beta, it forces a pipe (|) symbol if you show the site title before or after the page title in the <title> tag.

Consider the following:


if($config->get('sitename_pagetitles')==1) {
$sitetitle = JText::sprintf('JPAGETITLE', $app->get('sitename'), $sitetitle);
} elseif ($config->get('sitename_pagetitles')==2) {
$sitetitle = JText::sprintf('JPAGETITLE', $sitetitle, $app->get('sitename'));
}


This would allow a site admin to override the title separator if they wish without having to modify the core of SP Page Builder.

Also, would it be possible to implement a way to select what to link to from the menu so that we don't have to type them manually (if on same site) or if items move or changes are made, the SEF URLs are automatically updated.

I would like to support the above mentioned idea of in-text text editing.

I mentioned that a few weeks ago, that it would speed up editing if, when in front end editing, we could directly edit the headers and text on a page in the text itself (also) rather than (only) in the text editing boxes of the addons or JCE / TinyMCE.

There are other Joomla CCKs that offer this functionality. It would be great, if Page Builder Pro could do that too.

ad 1) Hopefully it's very easy to add. Just "&mute=1" to iframe section. I will ask, because indeed if youtube is for background better play without music.

ad 2) It request more work, because it request also font color change option. Right now only via custom class.

Hi friends, what is definitely needed is customizable joomla articles addon. With some option to manage image sizes, layout. I just understood that i need to use 3 party extensions to show 3 boxes with news on frontpage. I can say that every time i install an extra extension on joomla my belly starts aching. It is like i start loosing control.

If keep in mind website optimization than many of these extensions just resize html image sizes and thats is bad and they add many js css files.

Adding customizable map with different places option and colour overlays and customizable news module could save us from using strange 3 party modules at all.

Dear Paul

First I want to clarify that I am the only joomshaper to help in its development and certainly not to harm (I'm also joomshaper customer).

You certainly not sleeping im sure.

What I expect from my supplier and partner is transparency in communication, listening, taking into account remarks and improvements.

What you can expect from me:
a list of bugs
a list of improvement
version tests
the production of documentation
understanding and honesty

Second, please accept to manage bugs and improvement with a shared file system that is more convenient for that (its easy for me to send an example).
Indeed, it is exhausting to repeat the same things in the forum without the certainty that you have considered this information and be able to track.

About Helix4 I note that an alpha version will be released in December.
It would be nice to inform the community of joomshaper customers on the blog by giving some explanations on two lines.
If the output of Helix4 has yet to shift it of not bad just say.

The leitmotiv of software development is:
say what we do and do what they say.

I remain in service to joomshaper if you want of me :-)
Question How to become (for free) a member of the joomshaper team?

The new changes are interesting especially as I currently like to build sites from the backend and not the frontend.
The main thing that bothers me is that you are going to release this before Helix 4. The two go hand in hand but Helix gives the structure to whole of the website.
Without some quite major css and js changes you cannot even change the logo to be centered and the menu centered below it. This limits you to the design of your website completely.
Basically what I am saying is SP Page builder 2.54 was/is very functional and yet Helix 3 wasn't and yet you have decided to build SPB 3 first?

Yes Top same thing for me
I don't understand joomshaper choice. Because the normal order is to have new product for template and after that new product for the content.
Joomshaper never explained his strategy for Helix4 AND SP Page Builder V3.

Hi, Helix4 needs more research before releasing. As we are planning to support Helix4 for a long period of time, so we need more time to research how the framework will work with Joomla 3 as well as with Joomla 4. Also, our plan is to use Bootstrap 4 for the Helix4 framework, we are kinda waiting for the more stable release of the bootstrap framework.

I can understand your frustration but at JoomShaper we are really working hard to maintain our release schedule. As you may know that we are not only releasing new template on the very first day of each month but we also release updates with new features and bug fixes.

However, we are planning to write a blog post about Helix4 news and release date by the end of this week. One thing I want to inform you that we will not release Helix4 this month because we are attending Joomla World Conference 2017. But, we will let you know about the approximate release date and the progress we've made so far.

Thanks

Thanks very much for this reply.
Finally something substantial. We will all wait.
Please reply on my older posts especially concerning SPV3 and editing functions as well as the management of fixes and improvements (i can offer a shared file simple solution).
Im also ready to help you to test Helix4 as a special Team member for free of course (before alpha version).
I have time for that.

A way to disable audio on Youtube and Vimeo background video.


Music Mute for YouTube is already done, implemented in SPPB 3.0 RC version (soon today).
But it's not possible for Vimeo, we couldn't find a solution for it. Again big thanks, for useful idea.

Hello there,

First of all... Keep up the good work! We are all exited about upcoming SPPB3.

As I was testing SPPB 3 beta, I realised that there is no support (in SPPB3 Beta) for "custom" addons, from template's override (templates/my_template/sppagebuilder/addons). This means that probably all of us that are using overrides will need to re-code admin.php and site.php from the scratch (all over again)?

I also notice that SPPB admin does not recognises "custom font" from the template's override. For example, in Ares Murphy template, the path for custom Font (icons) is templates/shaper_aresmurphy/sppagebuilder/fields/aresicon.php, and when you try to load this icon font from admin.php with:

require_once dirname(dirname( __DIR__ )) . '/fields/aresicon.php';

It doesn't load it in new SPPB3 admin. This is very important subject, because all of us that already have created "custom addons" will need to start from the beginning (from the scratch).

Are you considering this to fix for SPPB3 "stable" version?

Kind regards,

Aplikko team

Hi.
Would still think it would be great to see a Footer section in Sections Library.

That way you can just add some quick footer designs to your helix3 / (4) template. And just remove the default footer.

Is there any progress getting parallax background to work on tablets & phones ?

Regards.

In most cases footer is reserved for template layout, not Page Builder - and there is the obvious reason for this.
Yes, in Helix 4 this section has been improved, I have seen. So just sit down, relax and wait.

Hide addons - that would be a really good function.

We may consider it, if more users will ask, right now you're the only one. More users ask for new addons.;)
Updated SP PageBuilder to 3.0 RC on a test site using the Macro template. First thing I noticed is that every section on the front page disappears in front-end edit mode except for the footer.

Hi, Please don't upgrade the sp page builder 3.0 in your product site. Because of that, there has override addon and we will update it as soon as possible. Thanks

SP Page Builder RC was only for fresh Joomla installation, not for updates. This warning was in blog post.
Hi Toufiq and Paul, I said specifically in my post that this was a "test site," not a production site. I was just trying it with the Macro template and noticed it was doing this. Just trying to help...

I did update to 3.0, and the Macro template is still doing the same thing (see screenshot). Am I to assume that this is an addon template override issue that needs the template itself to be updated?

Thanks!

Hi again,

I guess nobody cares about our suggestion for 6 days? Ok then, but I would need to open new request, since "stable" release (SPPB 3.0) came today.

The problem is following:

I notice that SPPB 3.0 admin does not recognises "custom font" from the template's override, only FontAwesome icons. For example, in Ares Murphy template, the path for custom Font (icons) is templates/shaper_aresmurphy/sppagebuilder/fields/aresicon.php, and when you try to load this icon font from admin.php with:


require_once dirname(dirname( __DIR__ )) . '/fields/aresicon.php';


It doesn't load it in new SPPB3 admin. This is very important subject, because all of us that already have created "custom addons" will need to start from the beginning (from the scratch). This is stopping creating "Custom Addons" (not 49 addons that are coming with SPPB).

Are you considering this to fix for SPPB3 "stable" version? Is there a path for custom addons "overrides" in this case (for custom icon font)?

Kind regards,

Aplikko team
Good day guys.

Just a quick one, Am not seeing the page sections on my newly installed 3.0 version. Is it the way it was designed?

If thats the case why cant we get the pre- designed sections loaded on installation rather.

Check image below

@trgova84 In most cases Sections Library should be loaded in 2-6 sec. They are stored on our server (sppagebuilder.com), so maybe your location is far far away or slow internet connection.

Check if you are logged out or not. Reload. Everything is so light in SPPB 3, it will take only seconds to load.

Thanks
Thats not the case. Templates also are not loading. I tried it on the fastest of connections. (fibre) but still cant load anything.

can you check on different hosting / website.
can you check on different hosting / website.


I have already done that on Six different locations with good internet facilities. Redownloaded the pro version but facing the same issue. I am working on Wamp server 3 64 bit.

WAMP you mean that you checked on localhost only ?
I tested the 3.0 RC Version also was doing the same. I test the 3.0 stable on my other hosting package today but am getting the same result. Will test it again after hours. Right now am doing office stuff.
I have an error that occurs when changing the font size of the "Section Subtitle", and that is that editing in backend and frontend looks good, but when saving and viewing the site in NO edition mode, the paragraph changes to 1px.

If I edit it again and I erase the font size, the error remains.

Working on a 4K monitor the buttons like edit can become very tiny. But getting to the correct design I need to go to edit quite a lot of times, My suggestion is to bring a second large edit button in the middle like this:

Your Stuff is light weight. I tested it on the slowest of connections but they are loading perfectly. The issue is server settings and server types. Work on the server types and put that on requirements.

Requirements should come handy for every user. e.g.

1. For Wamp
2. Xamp
3. Live Sites.
